Tops To Pops - Honolulu

The name and concept started being tossed around in July 1978 by Willie, Tom and Joe. Of course, the name was easy…”Tops” the restaurant, was our base camp… where most great ideas began and ended. In ’78 most of the guys were married and had kids so, “Pops” seemed appropriate not to mention, easy to remember. Where to meet for the first reunion also came easily…. Let’s go to a place that had snow…Lake Tahoe in February seemed the perfect spot. We sent one letter out to all the guys we had addresses for saying…. meet us at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe on Feb 13-15 1981 for the 1st TTP Reunion or you’re a “candy ass”. No other communication was sent out. As you can tell from the picture…a total of 13 guys showed up.

Since then, TTP has met 13 times in Las Vegas, Kona, San Juan Island, Canada, Oahu, Alaska and five other times back in Lake Tahoe. The next TTP is on the back burner…..stay tuned.
